A Captain in the Nigeria Army who led an emergency response team was killed in Adamawa State on Sunday, gunned down by a fellow soldier who also took his own life.

Premium Times reports that the Army said the tragic incident happened in Chibok, Borno State.

Eyewitnesses said Army Captain, T. Mani, was on Sunday morning patrol with other officers when they responded to a distress call that Silas Ninyo, a staff sergeant, was beating civilians at a nearby location.

Upon arrival, Mani and his team members prevailed on Ninyo and rescued the civilians from him; but the situation quickly turned fatal when they tried to disarm their colleague.

Ninyo opened fire, killing Mani, authorities said.
